    I was staring at my rocks after dark with a red light and saw this earthworm looking thing, it is abot 1/2mm diameter and extends and retracts constantly to a max of about 5mm. The end of it appears as a feather worm as it is retracting and it's main body remains inside a small hole in the rock. It appears to be a beige color thing. There is another about 1/2 that size with a zebra striping (black and white) which seems a similar thing but moves slower.

    I don't have a good enough camera to get the required macro photo because of it's size. Does anyone know what this thing is?

    Peanut worm would be my guess.
